AUSTIN, Texas–Acumera – the leader in Trusted Connections Services for retail organizations – has hired Tabitha Greiner as chief security officer.
Greiner is a Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) expert and will be responsible for leading all cybersecurity-focused initiatives for the business, including maintaining internal security practices and acting as an expert resource for customers and the retail community.
According to Dirk Heinen, Acumera’s chief executive officer, cybersecurity is a critical piece of the Acumera platform, particularly for convenience store operators who are struggling to keep up with and meet the latest PCI standards.
“Convenience store IT professionals don’t have the time or internal resources to keep up with the latest trends in the evolving cybersecurity industry, which is why we’re committed to doing it for them,” said Heinen. “Tabitha’s background as a Qualified Security Assessor for the Payment Card Industry and her knowledge of both compliance requirements and best practices will be a valuable resource to customers and to our team.”
Greiner is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional and a PCI Security Standards Council Internal Security Assessor. She is active in the cybersecurity community and participates in multiple committees, working groups and special interest groups. She was appointed as vice chairman of the Conexxus zone router data security working group in July and serves as the director of community outreach and sponsorships for the Austin chapter of Information System Security Certification Consortium, Inc. (ISC)2, a global non-profit that educates and certifies information security professionals.
“I’ve always been impressed with the way that Acumera has helped customers navigate the complexities of networking and cybersecurity, especially in terms of compliance,” said Greiner. “I’m looking forward to adding another layer to that support and amplifying the security culture that already exists within the Acumera organization.”
Prior to joining Acumera, Greiner served as director of security services at ComplyGuard Networks, a systems and network security provider. She also has held notable security consultant, security architect and security engineering positions at Verizon, Trustwave, Chicago Public Schools and Regence.
